Rockwell Collins Gets Approval for Satellite Connectivity in Brazil
[Via Satellite 08-30-2016] Anatel, the telecommunications regulatory body of Brazil, has given Rockwell Collins the ability to sign distribution and service agreements with any satellite entities and customers operating in the country. The global license authorizes the company to sell satellite services in Brazil.
“Brazil has been investing heavily in a growing network of airport and Air Traffic Control (ATC) facilities, and major events like the World Cup and 2016 Rio Games have also driven growth. Rockwell Collins’ ability to provide satellite connectivity will help support that growth, particularly for business aviation customers, where Brazil ranks third in the world after the U.S. and Mexico,” said David Stanley, vice president, ARINCDirect Cabin Services for Rockwell Collins.
Rockwell Collins is a value-added reseller for Inmarsat and Iridium satellite services.
